by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elliott (illness) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Jaguars, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

After missing practice all week, Elliott has predictably been ruled out. Through three games this year, the journeyman has played only on special teams, recording one tackle.

Steelers' Jayrone Elliott: Signs with Steelers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elliott signed a contract with the Steelers' 53-man roster Saturday, Teresa Varley of the team's official site reports.

Elliott has been elevated to the Steelers' active roster twice already, and now he's received a contract to remain part of the team moving forward. He's only played on special teams thus far, and that should remain the extent of his role barring an injury higher on the depth chart.

Steelers' Jayrone Elliott: Back with Steelers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pittsburgh re-signed Elliott on Thursday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Elliott, who worked out for the Steelers earlier this week, played a reserve role with the team in five contests last season. If he manages to make the team, he'll likely primarily contribute on special teams in 2020.

Steelers' Jayrone Elliott: Rejoins Steelers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jayrone Elliott: Let go by Steelers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elliott was waived by the Steelers on Thursday.

Elliott has been back and forth from the active roster this season, so it's possible he returns to the practice squad at a later date. In the meantime, his roster spot was needed to make room for the activation of Anthony Chickillo from the Reserve/Commissioner Exempt List.

Steelers' Jayrone Elliott: Back in Steel City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elliott signed with the Steelers on Wednesday.

Elliott has suited up in three games for the Steelers this year, making three tackles, including two on special teams. Elliott will add valuable depth with Mark Barron (hamstring) and T.J. Watt (abdomen) on the mend, while Anthony Chickillo was placed on the Commissioner's Exempt List on Wednesday.

Jayrone Elliott: Let go by Pittsburgh
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elliott was released by the Steelers on Friday, Chris Adamski of TribLive.com reports.

Elliott had three tackles in his three games with the Steelers and primarily played on special teams. Frederick Johnson was also waived as Pittsburgh adds Paxton Lynch and Trey Edmunds to the 53-man roster.

Steelers' Jayrone Elliott: Good to go Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elliott (hamstring) is active for Monday's game against the Bengals, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

Elliott began the week as a limited practice participant but finished with no limitations Saturday, so it's no real surprise he's available despite being listed as questionable. The 27-year-old exclusively played special teams in his Pittsburgh debut last week and he figures to fill a similar role versus Cincinnati.

Steelers' Jayrone Elliott: Questionable for MNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elliott (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Monday's game versus the Bengals.

The Steelers brought Elliott on for his special-teams upside, and he made two solo tackles in Week 3 versus the 49ers. Elliott was limited in practice Friday and Saturday, so he's likely a true game-time decision.

Steelers' Jayrone Elliott: Signs with Steelers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elliott signed a contract with Pittsburgh on Tuesday, Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Elliott was with the Steelers for just over the final week of preseason action, at which point he was released Aug. 31. With T.J. Watt sustaining a back injury in Sunday's loss to the Patriots, Pittsburgh may be looking for insurance or depth at linebacker by signing Elliott.

Jayrone Elliott: Cut by Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elliott was released by the Dolphins on Wednesday, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Elliott signed a contract with the Dolphins following an eight-game stint with the San Antonio Commanders in the now-defunct AAF, having led the league with 7.5 sacks. Since 2017, however, the 27-year-old has suited up in just one NFL contest.

Dolphins' Jayrone Elliott: Getting chance in Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elliott signed a contract with the Dolphins on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Elliott showcased himself well across eight games with the San Antonio Commanders in the now-defunct AAF, having led the league with 7.5 sacks. The 27-year-old was a part of the Packers' pass-rush rotation in 2015 and 2016, recording four sacks among 43 tackles in 25 games. Since he was traded to Dallas in September 2017, though, he's appeared in just one NFL contest.

Jayrone Elliott: Cut by Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints released Elliott on Saturday, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Elliott signed with the Saints in February, but KeShun Freeman beat him out for the backup strongside linebacker position. The fifth-year pro will look for a special teams role elsewhere.

Saints' Jayrone Elliott: Officially signs with Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elliott signed a reserve/future contract with the Saints on Wednesday, Herbie Teope of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

New Orleans tried to sign Elliott to a contract a couple weeks ago but didn't have a roster spot open to do so and, consequently, the NFL disapproved the signing. However, the team has since cleared space on the roster and Elliott is now officially a member of the Saints. The four-year veteran didn't appear in a regular-season game during the 2017 season but accrued 58 tackles, four sacks and one interception over 38 games for the Packers from 2014 through 2016 while primarily serving in a special-teams role.

Jayrone Elliott: Contract with New Orleans disapproved by NFL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The NFL disapproved the reserve/future contract between Elliott and the Saints on Monday, The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Elliott signed the reserve/future contract Jan. 26, but the lack of an open spot on the 53-man roster allowed the NFL to disapprove the contract. The 26-year-old reverts to free agency and is once again free to sign elsewhere.

Saints' Jayrone Elliott: Signs reserve/future contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elliott signed a reserve/future contract with the Saints on Tuesday, Herbie Teope of The Times-Picayune reports.

Elliott spent time with the Cowboys this past year but was waived in mid-September and failed to join another organization all season. He'll now spend the offseason in New Orleans, in the hopes of locking down a spot on the 53-man roster in 2018.

Jayrone Elliott: Waived by Cowboys
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elliott was waived Tuesday by the Cowboys, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

The move likely was made in order to make room for the return of Damontre Moore (suspension) to the active roster. The Cowboys traded with the Packers for Elliott at the start of the regular season and he was serving as a depth option at linebacker.

Cowboys' Jayrone Elliott: Not on first injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elliott (back) was absent from the Cowboys' first official injury report Wednesday.

The Cowboys traded away a conditional 2018 seventh-round draft pick for Elliott on Sunday. He was dealing with a back issue throughout training camp, but it was never considered to be serious. He figures to provide linebacker depth entering the season.
